Airlines Prepare For Hurricane Maria

By Grace Vasquez

Hurricane Maria is already wreaking havoc on Caribbean islands and Puerto Rico may soon be next.

So major national airlines have warned travelers of possible flight cancellations and delays.

DeltaSouthwest and American airlines announced there would be no change fees if a flight was impacted by Hurricane Maria. All three airlines are updating their websites with the latest details on their flights.  Regional airlines in the Caribbean have also canceled or delayed their flights.

Maria is described as an “extremely dangerous” Category 5 storm with maximum sustained winds of 160 mph on Monday as it barreled onto the island of Dominica in the eastern Caribbean and several tracks have it hitting PR directly as a possible Cat 4.

Meanwhile, Senator Bill Nelson, FL-D, has written to airlines’ chief executives, asking them to prevent fares spiraling out of control as the hurricane approaches. Fares suddenly skyrocketed in price as Hurricane Irma approached the Caribbean, Florida, Georgia and South Carolina.

Hurricane Maria could hit Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands tonight and Wednesday.  So far local meteorologist say it won’t affect Florida but only the hurricane will decide that in the end. Stay alert. ~grace
